Possibly, but we may need more information...
BMW did use a different style of the instrument cluster in the early model years. What are the two part numbers in question? We can look in www.RealOEM.com to determine if the parts are correct for your car.
However... even if the instrument cluster will connect and function, it will require dealer programming to be correct for your car. The instrument cluster stores the car's mileage, and if you replace the cluster, the car will illuminate the "tamper light" on the instrument cluster to show the mileage mismatch. Also, there may be dealer coding to properly configure the newer cluster for your car.

Re: Possibly, but we may need more information...
Managed to get the part numbers from the wreckers.
He has two available :-
a. 6211 8364 005 (has removable box on back, like what I am after)
b. 6211 8387 063
I tried searching realoem.com but couldn't find anything that matched the above two numbers :/

Re: Those numbers are in the ETK... :/
Hi there Roy, umm, without sounding like a complete idiot... your last post completely lost me... :/
So I'm guessing an ETK (cluster wrecker has) is not going to work in my car as it uses an IKE ???
Gosh... re-reading the above... shows my lack of (BMW) knowledge :(

IKE is the box on the back of the cluster. ETK is
the electronic parts catalog on CDs or DVDs by BMW.

Re: IKE is the box on the back of the cluster. ET
Humm... 725tds will fit on a 730d and possibly on a 740d, but i doubt it will work properly on a 740i. First, diesel's red line is at 4500 rpm and gasoline ones at 6500... More: they have "DIESEL" written on the fuel gauge. My 730d's fuel tank is 80 liter, but there are gasoline models with 95 liter ones... Can this diesel IKE be programmed for this?
And lastly... can a used IKE be reprogrammed fo other car? my dealer said me it cannot.. And if the IKE is new... why buying a 725 tds one if the car is a 740i?
